I’ve just reviewed Glock, The Rise of America’s Gun. Paul M. Barrett’s book devotes an entire Chapter to “Going Hollywood.” Barrett ascribes much of the Glock’s cultural success to the fact that it was the handgun of choice for both fictional good guys and bad guys. I’m not asking if we should “allow” the glamorization of guns (as if we could or should). Just the opposite. Does the increasing normalization of guns remove some of their mystique? In other words, are firearms still the s4it?
